The process of buying a shipping container is quite simple (especially if you buy from Shipping Containers Darwin). The more difficult step may be deciding where to store a shipping container. You have a few options on where to store a shipping container and we will cover some of those today.


Deciding where to store a shipping container onsite or at home can be quite intuitive, you can basically store it anywhere. You can store it anywhere that it will fit and that is safe and easily accessible. Ensure that you are storing it on a flat and stable area that will not be prone to erosion, flooding, or movement.

For your worksite, you can consult your workplace health and safety officer to help determine the best spot on the worksite to place it that will make it safe yet still easily accessible. For home storage, the thing same goes. If you’re still a bit unsure, you can get in touch with Shipping Containers Darwin and we’ll do our best to advise you on the best spot for storage.

You may also want to invest in a padlock or lockbox for your shipping container. These can easily be installed and add an extra level of security and safety to your shipping container.


If you don’t have enough space at home, your next best bet is a container yard. Container yards are also an ideal place for storage as many of the facilities are locked, monitored 24/7 with CCTV and do not allow unauthorised persons entry. Along with a place for storage they can provide you with peace of mind that your container and belongings are safely secured.
